Reginald Marsh (1898 to 1954)

Marsh was born in Paris to artist parents, both of whom were academically trained. His family retuned to the States when Marsh was two years old. He studied first at Yale University and then at New York’s Art Students League, where he became familiar with the work of John Sloan, George Luks, and the other members of The Eight, later known as the Ashcan School. In the early 1920s, Marsh worked as an illustrator for the New York Daily News, as well as doing freelance work for Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. This may well have been where he developed his interest in the daily life of New York – the figures who crowd the city streets and dance halls, shop girls, subway riders, burlesque stars and the leisure of Coney Island.
